India , Bharat or Hindustan whatever you call it , this beautiful motherland of mine, is a lesson in unity in diversity. Okay, it may be a little on the rocks , but all relationships go through their ups and downs.Doesn’t mean we can’t repair the broken parts.But intentions from all sides must be towards the same goal.I love my country.I adore the variety nature food, people and clothes offer .
When I lived in Delhi, I loved visiting all the food stalls at Dilli Haat.I loved the Rajasthani thali with moong daal ka halwa.I loved the Jalojog stall selling all things home.I loved Idli dosa and the Gujarati chaat. I liked Malabar parathas, Hyderabadi Biryani and the northeastern momos and dumplings.Food in India is a tapestry of deliciousness.
When I first read India’s history in school, I realised it was a beautiful melting pot of cultures, thoughts and religions.I am a woman born in Independent India and in West Bengal.Growing up I was never told, I can’t do this or that.The only time my mum regretted not having a son(at least that’s what she said). was when things had to be bought late at night.Even then, it wasn’t safe to be out late at night.But strangely enough, I managed to grow up and become a doctor, coming home late at night without any major scares.The scare however now is significant. Not only because I am a woman, but I am a doctor.Every second someone is harassing a woman or beating up a doctor. Can anyone do any work when there’s a risk to life?
On a lighter note, this is our #Thankful Thursdays. Counting blessings make me feel more at peace.I feel thankful ,that I had the independence to study what I wanted ,with gender not being a deterrent.
I am glad can drive a car and have a license.Many countries in the world don’t allow females to drive.
I am glad I have a right in every decision in my marriage and my marital status, is in no way controlled by the state or by religious police.
I am glad I have a right to vote.Women still fight for that right in some countries.
I am glad our country is secular and appreciates the truth about right to practice all religions.
I am also glad my countrymen are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in.
Simple things which we take for granted, don’t but important for those don’t enjoy the same priviledges.Its easy to ask for our rights,w hats difficult is doing our duties.Focussing on the nays makes them stronger ,s o I consciously decide to focus on the good .
